The aim of this paper is to evaluate the appropriateness of the proposed mass transit mode technology in the Greater Jakarta (Jabodetabek) Public Transport Master Plan. The analysis is focused on the estimated demand on the proposed bus rapid transit (BRT) network. A transport demand model based on the four step modeling approaches is prepared to estimate the demand on each proposed BRT route. Prior conducting a simulation, the model developed from previous works is calibrated and validated with various primary data namely, trip length frequency distribution and bus passenger data obtained from the field. In parallel, some assumptions and operational scenarios were established by taking into account the total number of ridership, maximum passenger flow, operational headway and proposed mode capacity. The appropriateness of the proposed mode was assessed and analyzed. The results show that the ridership and operational headway exceed the standard commonly used for the operational aspects of BRT on some proposed BRT routes. In addition, the evaluation shows that the proposed routes should be shifted to a rail base mass transit technology in order to maintain best level of services.
